Alabama Heritage

The winter 2011 issue of Alabama Heritage, an award-winning quarterly published by the University of Alabama and the Alabama Department of Archives and History, features Frye Gaillard’s article on Bayou La Batre, an embattled fishing village on the Alabama coast. Adapted from his book, In the Path of the Storms, co-authored with Sheila Hagler and Peggy Denniston, Gaillard’s story explores the history of the Bayou community from its founding in 1789 through the devastations of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill of 2010.
